I really started this poll for my Mom... she + I were talking last week about the fact that my fish turn 3 this fall [well, counting from when I got them]. So she was wondering, how long do most goldfish live -- does it depend on species, or tank size, or...

I gave her the best answer I knew -- I'll ask the people at Koko's! So I am starting this poll, to get kind of an average -- you can even tell us what kind the fish is, because I've heard that makes a difference, like orandas have different life spans that bubble eyes or veiltails or what not.

Should be interesting to see the results...

We've had our two goldfish (fantails) for three years.

My oldest fish, who ironically was the very first fish (that I won from a carnival), lived to be 11...Due to a severe swim bladder problem(and not knowing about this website several years ago) I ended up putting her to sleep. Her name was Glitter AKA Fat face. She was a perfect goldish-orange Fantail.

I am just taking a stab in the dark but she is probably about 1-3 I am assuming maybe a little younger, they were both so tiny when I got them.....Not really sure pet store lady didn't know either.

I know there is someone here that has a 20 year old Common.....

The oldest fish I have is an adopted 4 year old calico fantail.

Wow! :blink:

I told her I thought pet fish could live to the two-digits, but I think she was a bit skeptical. I will see if I get more results, and tell her when I see her on Wednesday. She will be stunned, I think. As I am personally quite fond of my fish, I am glad to know they can live for so long. :heart

Nice Oranda Koko. :)

The two commons I got at a bait shop back when I was clueless lived around 7 years. With what I know now, I'd bet water quality took em out prematurely when I left them with an automatic feeder over christmas.
